Corner Club: Dissecting Owl Pellets

Date: 04/24/2024
Time: 3:45 pm-4:30 pm

Great Mountain program coordinator Vicki Nelson and Eileen Fitzgibbons will lead an exciting program where children of all ages will get to dissect (sanitized) owl pellets. Hours after consuming their prey, owls regurgitate a small grey pellet containing all the indigestible leftovers like bones and fur. Participants will get the chance to solve a complex puzzle as they separate out bones that might belong to voles, mice, shrews and more! Some may even find intact skulls! This hands-on experience will be both educational and fun.

Children will need a note to get off the school bus at the Library. Please register here.
